Oral histories capture stories of life along the Rappahannock

The Rappahannock River watershed has undergone extreme changes since the advent of modern transportation and indus-try, particularly since the 1930s. The impacts to the river have been many, and the way people use it as a resource has changed. Many people still living in the watershed can describe their experiences growing up on small family farms, or moving produce by boat, during the Great Depression.
